Read on for inspiration and tips to refresh your home’s interior.

Whether the design trends or your personal preferences are changing, craving a home décor update is perfectly natural. No matter how much your taste changes, a few small projects and swap-outs can be enough to satisfy you. Renewing your home’s interior doesn’t have to involve extensive renovations; in fact, you can give your home a modern refresh with a few simple adjustments.

Rethink Your Tables

Your coffee table and end tables play a significant role in your overall décor—swapping them out for something new (or used!) can produce a completely different aesthetic in your home. Consider using a storage ottoman, a small bench, or a set of nesting tables rather than a traditional coffee table. In addition, you can benefit from replacing your end tables with modern options, such as marble tops with gold legs.

Bonus Tip: Bar stools can work as end tables if you want a vintage design!

Swap Out Your Rugs

Whether you have existing rugs or bare floors, a new, neutral-colored rug can breathe new life into any room. Shag rugs work best for the colder months, while flat weave rugs are perfect for spring and summer. For a unique touch, consider opting for a round rug.

Upgrade Your Lighting

Believe it or not, your lighting impacts your overall interior design; updating it can take your décor to the next level. Whether you choose to increase natural light with sheer curtains, upgrade to LED bulbs, or install unique light fixtures and lamps, new lighting can create a refreshing ambiance.

Consider Repainting

Although repainting can be a hassle, it’s an excellent way to create a whole new look in a room. While calming, neutral tones are a wonderful spring trend to use in your home, bright, bold colors are great for summer and produce beautiful aesthetics, especially on an accent wall. If you don’t want to paint, consider choosing a gorgeous wallpaper for one wall to create a focal point in the room.

Add New Wall Art

Although interior design goes much deeper than what’s hanging on the walls, it’ll surprise you how much a few new pieces of wall art can affect your home’s style. Your living room doesn’t have to look like a gallery, but hanging art that speaks to you can make a house feel like a home.

With these tips for giving your home a modern refresh, you can create an atmosphere you love without breaking the bank or sacrificing too much time. No matter what your home looks like now, a simple refresh can go a long way and produce a whole new aesthetic. Once your interior is complete, you can explore ways to refresh your patio design to make it an extension of your home.
